The most important thing to do when you discover an infestation of termites is not panic. Although they will probably have done some damage already, as long as you get it sorted out quickly your property should be okay.
The optimal way of doing this is to contact pest control specialists who will be able to eliminate the infestation by destroying the colony. There are also treatments that you can buy, but the only way you will know that the problem really has been completely eradicated is if you get professional help.
Have a termite problem ?
If you think you’ve found termites, avoid disturbing them further and investigating. Breaking open feeding sites or their mud tubes is likely to scare them off temporarily, making it more difficult to identify the problem or apply remedial treatments.
Rule 2: Don’t spray
Spraying them with insecticide will kill the termites you hit, but will not eliminate them from the building or destroy the nest, making them likely to return, often in a different location.
